Did everyone get what they wanted for Christmas? I know I did. :D I hit up Walmart earlier this week because I had no idea that Konami had put out special Yu-Gi-Oh! sets, so I rushed right over to grab one of "Yugi's Legendary decks." It's so old school, it's nostalgic, and there's a lot of good cards in here. Unfortuantely everything seems dated so it probably won't be able to complete against the newest game gimmicks. Still, it's nice to get these cards if only for collecting purposes. The box is really nice though, with all the hieroglyphs running across it, reminding you of the game's origins in Ancient Egypt, at least according to the show, lol. It reminds me of the box that held the Millennium Puzzle in the series.

The box also comes with a few promotional cards in addition to playable ones. The Duelist Kingdom cards from the show are nonplayable and no, you can't trade Glory of the King's hand for 3 million dollars to pay for your real life sister's eye operation. The Egyptian God Cards next to the special Yugi token are also nonplayable and are only there for show.

You also get a complete set of Exodia the Forbidden One in this set, which would instantly win you the game if you draw all five pieces. These are all holographic. They're also only found in this set. Ones on Ebay can get quite expensive these days.

No set containing Yugi's decks is complete without an army of Dark Magicians and DMGs. You get a DM and a DMG in EVERY one of the three below decks, including the special red Dark Magician used by Arkana in Battle City in his duel against Yugi. Also printed for the first time in English is Griffore in place of his Silver Fang, which I wish was included. Griffore and the red Dark Magician were also only printed in Japan until now.

In addition, I have another Christmas toy review for y'all under the break! It's not Rudolph, but it sure is close!
OH DEER )

As for spending Christmas today, my plan is to eat lots of turkey and gravy sitting in the fridge and watch Yu-Gi-Oh, lol. And if I'm bored, I have Harry Potter games for the PC that I can play... yay! Oh, and there are library books... there are ALWAYS books to be read.
